ULTRASONIC TESTING OF TIGHTNESS OF HOLDS, CARGO HATCHES, CONTAINERS AND OTHER SEALED COMPARTMENTS
Our qualified surveyors perform vessel inspections, ultrasonic leak testing and Pre-insurance Inspection with the latest UK-made ultrasonic leak testing equipment: the Cygnus Hatch Sure Ultrasonic Hatch Leak Detector.
Features of the Cygnus Hatch Sure Ultrasonic Leak Detector:
The Cygnus Hatch Sure Ultrasonic Leak Detector provides an efficient and rapid assessment of hatch tightness to prevent water or moisture from entering through leaking hatches, resulting in cargo damage.
The system consists of a transmitter, which contains of a generator with 19 ultrasonic emitters (40 kHz) and is powered by a battery. These emitters have a special distribution pattern - the reproduced sound field equally covers the entire control area, and the receiver records the ultrasonic signal that penetrates through the slots and allows you to quickly and accurately determine the areas of leaks.
The generator is placed inside the hold, and then, using the receiver, the signal level is compared with the hatch cover open and through the seals of the closed hatch cover. If the signal level at the closed hatch cover is more than 10% of the open signal level, the hatch is considered leaky
The Cygnus Hatch Sure ultrasonic leak detector is designed:
